Christmas is the one time of year when I go a little crazy. Thankfully it only lasts for one month. This chocolate marshmallow Christmas slice is perfect for share parties and contains no egg!
How do you get the look of meringue on top without using egg? Well, you make marshmallow, that’s how! I always thought marshmallow was super hard to make, but it’s not. I have done it two ways just to test my method, once in my Magimix Cook Expert, and once in the food processor. Both methods are super simple.
I have a child who hates marshmallow. And he loves this slice. It’s probably the sprinkles. I wouldn’t make this to keep at home, it’s definitely a shared thing because nobody needs this much sugar hanging around in the fridge!
And I won’t even pretend that this is healthy because it isn’t. And that’s ok because nobody wants to be that person who brings something that won’t be eaten to a class party! It’s fun and delicious.
This is super easy to make, mix up the base and bake, then add the marshmallow topping. And set in the fridge. Make sure you put the sprinkles on while the marshmallow is hot or they won’t stick.
When you’re slicing this, make sure your knife is super clean and be ready to peel the marshmallow from the edges of your pan, or even insert a spatula between the marshmallow and the cake pan to separate first.
I used a silicone square pan to make this, and it was easy to remove. If you’re making this and using a metal tin, I recommend putting baking paper right up the sides so that when you add the marshmallow it is easily removed.
It can easily be made in advance too, so is perfect for making pre-Christmas for a dessert on Christmas day.
